Bonnibella's Diary of a Bridemaid's Diet

Instead of beginning with the expected expression of "Always a bridesmaid and never a bride" I will begin with my diary of a bridemaid's diet. Of course the wedding belongs to the bride; but with a thousand flashes from the camera and modern means of distributing the photos - facebook, twitter, youtube, snail mail, flickr, sms, etc, - sister gotta look presentable.

Chicago Miracle Mile dresses

I took this picture in Chicago summer 2008, they displayed dresses made out of recycle materials along Miracle Mile. Click here to see the ones I was able to capture.


I'm going to share some of the food, grumpy stories, and progress of my diet. My

weakness is flaming hot cheetos



- the slow build up of the numbing spiciness, crunchy texture, artifical corn aroma and my fingers stained red with evidence is my guilty pleasure...paired with a diet coke. Bye Bye. With a sad face.

The Bridesmaid dress is already picked, bachelorette party in Las Vegas, outdoor wedding, Chinese tea ceremony, over 300 guest at the reception. Here we go...

I'll be honest...I'm not the biggest fan of spicy foods, or Cheetos in general; but I'm willing to indulge in a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos for you - if you want to eat them vicariously through me.

I only request that, should I find myself in a similar predicament somewhere down the road, you will eat an entire jar of Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter for me!

Good luck with the Bridesmaid Diet my love!! :)

I love cheetohs but haven't tried the spicy hot... sounds like trouble to me. Best of luck with the bridesmaid diet, I hope it's not too long of an interval (I HATE diets too). But the wedding part, sounds like fun!

let me get this striaght: you gotta deal w/ the bride, pay for the travel expenses, cover your bach party, AND go on a diet? F THAT MANG! You can't pay me to be a bridesmaid!

This sounds familiar. You won't be the only one getting ready for someone else's wedding. G'luck to us all!

This is wrong. A bridesmaid shouldn't go on a diet :-)

Pretty dress. It looks like an empire waist? If so, you don't have to diet so much then. That style is more forgiving. ;)

Food Gal said...

I have to say those recycled materials dresses are pretty snazzy looking! I wouldn't mind having one, myself. ;)
